Every child has an inspiration whom they wish to follow. It can be in any form they imagine. Their inspiration can be their parents, sibling, friend or even someone walking down the street. A human mind is the most creative when it is young and developing. At a later stage it just starts getting matured. Usually in well-to-do families, children think of having a life like their father, friends like their sibling and talent like Sachin tendulkar. But in a little darker side of this world, there are little minds that imagine having food like that kid in a restaurant they passed, owning an apartment they came to work in and going to school like every other kid in the school bus every morning.
Unfortunately not all can afford to talk about their imagination to their parents. All they do is help them in earning money and getting food in the house. No matter how many NGOs and government bodies are formed to help such families, one will always find a kid holding out newspapers at traffic signals. They haven't seen a light of knowledge to cast a shadow over their roofless home. Ignorance does not make human kind, awareness and taking action does.
This is when the youth of Leo Club steps in. Every person knows the importance of growth and wants to see every brain develop to make a life for themselves. We see these children as our friends and we help them as friends, not just for the sake of an N.G.O. We give them only a ray of hope, it is the budding minds that make a light out of the rays.
